GOP Lawmaker: Cancer Is A Fungus; All You Really Need Is Baking Soda To Get Rid Of It

So says Nevada State Assemblywoman Michele Fiore (R-Ignorance Nevada Dist. 4). Take your choice of sources: Kos, MSNBC, ThinkProgress, etc. etc. ad nauseam. If you still really need big blonde politicians, try Texas... the hair is probably bigger and blonder here, and the brain is indisputably larger.

Clarification: I have no objection to people's trading on their good looks (if indeed that is possible for Ms. Fiore). There are jobs for which a pleasant appearance is a primary or even a sufficient qualification. I'm afraid I don't agree that legislatin' is such a job. And the unlicensed practice of medicine is most certainly not.


  1. Oh jeez. Puh-leeze. Maybe she heard somewhere that cervical cancer has been linked to HPV and thought somehow HPV was a fungus, despite the fact that HPV stands for Human PapillomaVIRUS? Heck, I have a easy time thinking she doesn't know the difference between a virus and a fungus. Sheesh!

    Dumber than a stump. And she's one of our rulers. GAH!

    1. 'Tux, this woman is yet another demonstration that democracy requires a citizenry at least minimally educated. Today's GOP literally puts a premium on ignorance; that fact could be our nation's demise in the not-too-distant future.

  2. "she doesn't know the difference between a virus and a fungus." True that, but it is so difficult for a single cell amoeba to grasp the concept.
